The Journey To His Concerts Now

"Kenny Rogers provides many hits to his fans that support him unconditionally. He also knows how to go into different genres of music which he thinks will be interesting to his fans and maybe just a casual listener tired of hearing "The Gambler" all the time. It can get tiring hearing that song and even "Lady", which is very likely his anthem. Rogers seems to know this and nearly touches upon that very thought. You can put out a concert video of 23 songs, then run the credits, close up the show to the home audience with a behind-scenes-look for good measure. That's not what's done here. It would have been nice to see what we click on where the menu screen says, "PLAY CONCERT". What is instead given is an easy to understand documentary with additional features and the documentary happens to have concert footage that no one possibly has ever seen.
Kenny Rogers is interviewed and so is his long time manager. Several producers, arrangers, songwriters are called upon to comment on Rogers' career. It's surprising to hear that Sheena Easton and Rogers did not get along very well for their hit, "We've Got Tonight". Their performance is shone and it is in his concert. Looking closely we can almost see them going through the motions to pretend they have a rapport that's positive. Kim Carnes is featured on the beautiful, "Don't Fall In Love With A Dreamer". (In 1999 Carnes and Rogers revitalized their hit for a European album release, "After Dark".) We see Rogers play upright Bass. We see "Islands In The Stream" performed. Willie Nelson and Rogers duet on an Irving Berlin classic. A member of The First Edition, Rogers' band before going solo, has a few spots included in this DVD. Lionel Richie, writer of "Lady", sheds humor from his working with Rogers. Several songs from Rogers' new and impressive, hot-selling country album (in concert or music video form) show the viewer that "The Gambler" himself has plenty of intelligent and creative hands he's thinking to play since he is "The Greatest". Many will know what is meant by that."
This is a wonderful surprise!

"I liked Kenny when he was with the First Edition. So when I heard that the First Edition appeared on this DVD I decided to check it out. I absolutely love it. There are clips from his earlier career right up to the present. There are people like Lionel Ritchie and Mickey Jones giving commentary. There are a few First Edition Clips and his duets with the ladies like Dolly Parton and Sheena Easton.
I highly recommend this DVD and the quality is high. Thanks Amazon!"
